Work experience: Working as a Catering Assistant means that you will constantly be working in a fast-paced, customer-focused environment and be constantly on your feet. There are two ways to make your CV stand out for this job: a) gain some work experience by volunteering, b) place the “Employment and Work Experience” before the “Education” section emphasising your practical skills and personal attributes.
CV Length: The length of Catering Assistant CV should ideally be one or two pages long (max). If you’re a school leaver or a person who hasn’t “done” much in their career to date, then a 1-page CV should suffice and will not be held against you. Remember the saying: “I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”
